Summer is here, and to celebrate the season of sunshine and relaxation, we’re taking a closer look at Inku, a stunning new residential development in the exclusive Mondo enclave in Selvazama, Tulum. Designed to embrace into the surrounding jungle while being mere moments from the Caribbean Sea, this ultra-private community balances sustainably sourced local materials with of-the-moment modern amenities and services, presenting divine, peaceful living in one of the world’s most desirable destinations.
As discussed in The Agency’s third annual Red Paper—an extensive report compiled of the latest data, research and insights on real estate market performance throughout the U.S., Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean and Europe in 2022—destination markets like the Riviera Maya and Cancun to the north experienced similar challenges as the rest of the world: tight inventory, competitive rental markets and a push for new development to answer the demand of buyers looking for second homes and investment properties.
Over the last few years, more people became familiar with the Riviera Maya and were inspired to invest in high ROI vacation homes—some of which became more permanent dwellings thanks to remote work.
Today, Riviera Maya is still primarily a pre-construction, cash market. The region, particularly Tulum (home to the Inku community), has always had a strong rental market. In 2022, buyers sought residences with more space, privacy, unique architecture and lavish features like ground-floor, swim-up residences; the thoughtfully amenitized elements of Inku align nicely with the elevated expectations of today’s buyers and investors.
Comprising just 12 residences, Inku’s two- to three-bedroom layouts range in size from 1,600 square feet to over 3,000 square feet. Derived from the Mayan word for “nest,” Inku’s homes are steeped in sleek modern design and filled with contemporary comforts, each residence offers spaciousness and privacy rare for the region.
Every residence boasts its own plunge pool or lush private patios. Plus, Inku’s Sky House Penthouses present a truly transcendent Tulum living experience. Each two-story penthouse offers two pools, outdoor showers, soothing jungle views and inviting contemporary interiors—pairing total opulence with exceptional design to provide peak luxury in the Riviera Maya.
Inku residents can also enjoy quick access to the beach and Jaguar National Park (just 10 minutes away) and are privy to an abundance of additional amenities and services, including miles of biking and walking paths, a 24/7 concierge, airport transportation, cleaning services, a co-working space, private chefs and trainers, rental management, 24-hour security, in-room spa services and much more.
